A quarterback from Texas’ past could be its quarterback of the future.
On Thursday, the father of former Longhorn Connor Brewer told the American-Statesman that his son “would absolutely entertain a return to Texas.”
Robert Brewer added that his son “enjoyed everything about his experience” in 2012 when he redshirted at Texas. Brewer, who spent the past two seasons at Arizona, has been granted a release to transfer. He is graduating and will be eligible in 2015 wherever he lands.
Brewer, of Chaparral High in Arizona, was the nation’s fourth-ranked pro-style quarterback in 2012, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. After he redshirted at Texas, Brewer transferred to Arizona where he had to sit out the 2013 season. He was a back up this past season.
Brewer has not attempted a college pass. This past year, he rushed for a touchdown in Arizona’s season-opening win over UNLV.
